Cliche comment bingo

I'm in the mood for fun and games over the festive season, so let's play a quick round of cliche Goth comment bingo. Again this is me being silly, you don't get a prize for full house (except for the knowledge that you are clearly Very Goth). Let me know how many of these comments you've been on the receiving end of in 2011 - and yes, if you've had all of them, I want to see a BINGO! in that comment box. ;-)
  1. Whose funeral is it?
  2. It's not Halloween yet / Halloween is over
  3. Cheer up!
  4. Oh my God, it's a vampire!
  5. So, what's Goth, then?
  6. EMO!
  7. GOTH!
  8. SATAN!
  9. Nice costume
  10. Can I pray for you?
  11. Is that your real hair?
  12. You should get more sun
  13. There's a hole in your tights, dear
  14. It's a phase, you'll grow out of it
  15. Are you a witch?

I firmly believe that the owner of this Tumblr stole and reblogged my actual brain. This pleases me.
Bonus point if you've had the same comment I keep getting this season: Are you a Christmas tree fairy? o.O

I've gotten 5, 6,7 (how is that one an insult? Some girls at school were snickering behind me saying, "That Gothic chick" and stuff. *Shakes head*) and I've gotten 9 from a good friend of mine who was joking around.

theEmocarebear said...

Bingo!

& I am often compared to a rainbow faery . . . though a Christmas faery would be sweet. [:

Anonymous said...

Bingo! *lol* But without the bonuspoint. But by now I don't get those comments anymore, since I'm no longer a goth on the outside.

Anonymous said...

Oh I have to correct myself, the emo-one I've never heard either, because there were no emos when I was a goth. :)

Lolitadewdrop said...

5, 11 and 13. I actually don't mind any of these questions that I've recieved. :) I don't think that they are nasty, just inquisitive.

Abilene said...

I've got... 2,5,6,7,13 and 14. I think 6 is the most annoying. :P

Saphire Rainforest said...

Ok I've gotten most of these except the you need more sun one. But I'm guessing its because I'm a black Goth. I recently got the Halloween comment on sat on my way to a meet and greet in Baltimore. My brother n law asked me if it was Halloween. I told him that comment is old as dirt and probably older than he is and quite common. I think a little girl asked her father if I were a faerie though. So cute. As I grow older and begin yo surround myself with older, mature, and like minded people I don't receive those comments as much any more. Most people ask me to make them things since a lot of my clothes are DIY. Even if I were a fair skinned girl I don't think I'd be mistaken for Abby.

Caroline Carnivorous said...

I goth (that wasn't intentional, lol!) 11 of them!

Miss Eva Morgan Reeve said...

Bingo!

Nightwind said...

Items 2, 4, 5, 7 and 15 apply to me. Number 4 is the one I hear the most.

gin said...

Bingo, and what about "Freak" and "what play are you in?".^_^

BellaDonna said...

I didn't get ANY... I guess that makes me totally UNGOTH... ::sob::

Darling Violetta said...

That last one about Abby from NCIS makes me laugh SO hard. People have said I look like her and Lydia Deetz. The funniest thing about it is that I'm a light skinned black girl with dreads. I look more like Lisa Bonet than anything. LOOOL! XD

Bane said...

I used to get 2, 3, 9, 11 (constantly!) and 15. But I didn't get any of those comments in 2011. (Quick, someone deduct Credibility Points from my Goth Card! :P ) Growing older has its advantages, I suppose. Rude comments give way to nice ones. Instead of #11, I get "You have beautiful hair" and instead of #2, I get "It's October; are you excited for Halloween?"

MistressOfTheDecay said...

4. 6. 7. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
It's bound to happen as a Goth; ANd honestly, I mind it not.

Tenebris In Lux said...

I've had a lot of these (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15. So everything but 1 and 9 ..)

You forgot the "killer Goth" one, too. I love my long black coats but they sometimes earn me a stink eye from a parent or kids talking about how I'm going to massacre the whole school -_- Some other kid said I "looked evil, so are you going to kill us all?" Really? What goes on in their minds .. more likely .. what is put in their minds to THINK this way about us?! o_o

Mira said...

I've gotten 9, though I don't think they were trying to be mean.

linnea-maria said...

No bingo for me. 1, 3, 5 (but the word goth wasn't invented back then), 6, 11, 13, 14, 15. Just an hour ago my partner told me I reminded him of Abby, because I'm a pure nerd, can be very enthusiastic about things others don't understand and I wear a labcoat over my black clothes at work (but mine is dirty).

Anonymous said...

4. i think. someone shouted 'oh my god, its dracula!'...even though dracula's male...and im clearly not.

Under_The_Stairs said...

Bingo!(yes,even the SATAN thing LOL)

MistressOfTheDecay said...

On second thought, I have got 9 as well... I went to a haunted house on Halloween, and was thought to be dressed up... They weren't intentionally making fun of me, they actually THOUGHT I was dressed up!

Ghoulina Bones said...

2,3,4,5,9,11,12,13,15

BLINK said...

christmas tree fairy? really?
oh, and bingo.

residentreject6 said...

BINGO!!

Although When people say, "You look like you're going to a funeral" I always say, "Thank you!!" and give them a big smile

Kitty Lovett; The Unadulterated Cat said...

There was a lady in my old town, who actually drew my blood last year for testing, who still firmly remembers me. She calls me Abbey...despite not having black hair?

The Abbey comment happens A LOT. The rest of them do too, along with one I got the other week: "WOW, YOU'RE SO PALE". I wasn't wearing very much facial makeup at all....because I was having a good skin day. Thanks, guy!

But I also get a lot of admiring little girls who venture forth with their mothers, and relay (from behind her legs, of course) that "she thinks you look like a princess" or "she thinks you're beautiful". My favourite of these was when I was waiting for the bus, with my huge hair and giant boots, and a woman with her 12-/13-year-old daughter walked past. She stopped and started talking to me, saying that she loved my style, etc, etc. She then turned to her daughter (who was clearly a young babybat, in the best way) and said, "I would be so proud of you if you grew up to be like her!"

That girl had the biggest smile on her face as she walked away. I wish my mum had been that encouraging.

The old lady comments get me, too. Every time I get one, they are so sweet and enquiring and "I wish I had your courage!" but they always apologise, thinking they're being rude/intrusive.

Kitty Lovett; The Unadulterated Cat said...

OH and then there was the time Fairy and I were in sydney train station, and this older woman (she was, like 60?) came up to us and said, "Excuse me, are you steampunks?"

/end comment about comments

Roxandria said...

Pls tell me that crown is from a Christmas popper X3

Cali said...

I've got 1,2,4,6,8,9,12,14,15. So close to a bingo!

And yes i've gotten so many people to tell me i look like 'that chick on ncis.' If people start to talk about her i just finish their comment because i'm so sick of it. Even when i'm in my pjs (which are awesome they have bats on them.) i still look like her.

Kreepette said...

I've gotten the first one of 2!!!

Faery Jay said...

Everything except for 10 and 14! =D

VictorianAndroid said...

I've only gotten six of those.

The HouseCat said...

I've never been told to cheer up, probably because I'm perpetually hyperactive and bouncing about with a grin on my face, but I've had all the others. I've had "Do you know about Jesus?" a lot and "WHORE OF BABYLON!!" yelled at me by some middle-aged woman in Bristol as well as the usual "Freak" and "Mosher".

kakuidori said...

i thought there would already have been more bingo's XD

I've received 2, 4, 6, 7, 13, and 14. You've forgotten another comment that I've gotten quite a lot... "Do you cut?"

Most of the comments I receive are rather pleasant, though, so I don't have that many bingos.

Katelynn said...

I get 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12, and 13.

Anonymous said...

I've had 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. If I had £1 for every time I've heard "Cheer up, love, it might never happen!" I could probably afford that £300 corset that I've been eyeing up.

Another amusing one I get often in reference to my lip ring is "Does that leak whenever you have a drink?" A few times I've even had to take a swig of water in front of the person asking to prove that it doesn't.

Anonymous said...

Bingo! + bonus point.

Phoe said...

I've had 2,4,5,6,7,8,12,13,14 and 15, so not quite a bingo. xD

My grandparents often ask me "what goth is" and ask when I'll "grow out of the phase."

As for the Satan comment, I made friends with a guy who has an extremely religious family this year, and I met his mum one day when we were in town together. His mum freaked out, yelled at him in Polish (they're from Poland) in the middle of the street, told him he's not allowed to date me (we weren't dating, we'd known each other about a month by this point, and I have a boyfriend) and took him home, leaving me alone in town with no way of getting home til my parents called me. She's been using the phrase "Satan's Temptress" behind my back ever since. O_O

The Black Rabbit said...

An absolutely adorable little girl(who couldn't have been more than 5) asked her father if I was a bad witch, and I've gotten(in not the same words, but the sentiment was there) the "it's just a phase" one from a family friend. Also, not comments, but I've gotten a -lot- of disapproving glares from soccer-mom types.

I really want someone to ask me if I know it's not Halloween yet, because that amuses me immensely (and because I'm a dork).

LovleAnjel said...

2, 3, 10, 13, 15 and being told I look like Abby multiple times. I'm too old to hear "you'll grow out of it", but I do get told "I used to dress like you, but I grew out of it" instead...does that count?

I had someone block my path and order me to smile in the beginning of the year. And over the summer some nervous teenagers tried to get me to join their church (their youth pastor must had told them to find people in need of saving - they were surprised when I said I got along great with my parents).

Anonymous said...

Ive gotten 2,3,5,6,7,10,13, and 14 lol

ultimategothguide said...

GothPocket - I didn't say any of them were insults. Just commonly recieved comments.

Roxandria - yes, it is. XP

Daniel_8964 said...

I have encountered 1, 6, 7, 13, 14 and 6 being the most annoying one. 6 and 7 the common one that I get both labelled as and mixed up. 13 as I've been asked once that theres holes/rips in my DIY ripped t-shirt.

Maggie said...

I'm beginning to think I'm too old to get 14. Never got the "emo" one, either. Other than that, yes, I've heard them all. Plus some more regarding piercings/tattoos :)

InfiltratorN7 said...

So it's Abbey the idiots are all shouting out at goths now? I remember in the early 2000s when you just had to go to out in a leather trench and you'd get Neo shouted at you by idiot chavs. >_< If it wasn't that we'd get "Mosha! Dirty mosha" shouted at us. The idiots couldn't tell the difference between moshers, skaters and goths. We were all the same to them: freaks. I used to get called a witch, a Satanist, devil worshipper etc a lot and the praying comments too. I once had a guy have a go at me for reading the Chronicles of Narnia, telling me it's Christian so goths can't read it. So many levels of stupid.

The most stand out memory I have of the praying for our souls thing I've experienced was in 2001 at a Marilyn Manson concert. It was raining heavily and we were queuing. Standing alongside the queue were all these Christians protesting, praying for our souls and erm...handing out jam doughnuts to us. o_O

Loupie said...

I've had 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 sort of it wasn't meant as an insult

A small child in Oxford pointed to me and said there's a witch the other week, which kind of made my day. Also had a woman, presumably on the phone say, loud enough that it was probably aimed at me, "just work, and evil Satan-worshipping finance"

Also had vampire hunter, I thought you were a ghost and others I can't remember right now

Vulcan_Butterfly said...

OH GOD, the NCIS THING!! I used to have longer hair with my bangs and I worked in a lab so if I had a dollar for every time I heard that, I'd be rich. Now I have SHORT hair with bangs and work at a job that involves a white coat and I STILL get it, even though I look nothing like that. Also, if I hear "IS THAT YOUR REAL HAIR?" while wearing synth dreads or cyberlox (which are CLEARLY not real hair) one more time I'm going to snap!!!

Mysteria Violent said...

Lol))) I always hear such comments. There is one more that is not listed in your blog - "does your lip piercing hurt? Can you eat with it?"

AutumnAbyss said...

I've only gotten 2,3,4,5,6,10,12,14. Although 12 was from my doctor.. so I'm not sure that counts XD. And once when I went to town, this dude came over and started talking to me about religion and asking me what i was (quite obviously eyeing up my 'abbey-esque' fringe and heavy eyeliner)so i told him (getting the 'whats a goth?' question -.-) then i had a bit of fun, and told him i was a devil worshipper and was off to sacrifice a goat o.o he couldnt get away fast enough XD and npw whenever he sees me, he runs to the other side of the street XD
